Interactive VR environment with Kinect-based motion capture for mirrored First- and Third-Person avatars.
The technological and social framework around Contemporary VR is simultaneously an infinite landscape and a prison. It has the aesthetics and rhetoric of infinity (“you can be anyone, anywhere, doing anything”), but practices of confinement (restricted mobility, limited access, embedded surveillance). In This Could Be You, users inhabit the body of a 90-year-old woman, trapped in an environment raining trash from the digital era. Her actions are mirrored in her twin, stripped of clothing. Live motion capture through a Kinect allows the user to interact with the experience without the use of controllers.
